  3. Round 6 Slacktivity Freestyle Competition

    This is the 6th challenge in the contest, brought to you by our Slacktivity Athlete Richard! In this video you will learn one of his signature tricks which makes his style so amazing, powerfull and fun! The Korean roll to sofa position, the tricky part is the timing here, in time you have to put your leg over the line and quickly grab the line before it will throw your self off. Also be quick this time after the roll you need to stand up quickly.

  4. Round 5 Slacktivity Freestyle Competition

    This combo is the fifth assignment in our slackline contest. In this video Slacktivity Athlete Louis Lenobe shows the 5th challenge. Last challenge you already had a go had getting from sitting to feet, this round has this challenge once more. But now also from feet to sitting. Louise explains that it's important to change your position when you're "lightweight" aka on top of the bounce. And when you are "heavy" on the end of the bounce you have to be strong. Good luck!

  5. Round 4 Slacktivity Freestyle Competition

    This combo is the fourth assignment in our slackline contest. In this video Slacktivity Athlete Sarah Rixham shows the 4th challenge. It's time to get to the more challenging combo's. We go from backbounce, to chestroll, to feet. It has element of tricky balancing on the back, and the fast acting for getting back on the line again in one bounce. Checkout the video, Sarah will talk you right through it! 

    Some backstory from Sarah about the video:

    I’m stoked to present this combo as I hadn’t tried it before so it was fun to try something new! I’m really psyched about learning new bounce tricks on the highline at the moment as I’m finally making progress after everything feeling so hard (and scary) at the beginning. Especially the mount in this combo which took me a really long time to learn and it feels like just the basics (not to put you off trying I’ve seen people learn it in one session). So even if you think it’s too hard or scary try this combo or even just some parts of it, it will become really fun I promise!

  6. Round 3 Slacktivity Freestyle Competion

    This combo is the third assignment in our slackline contest. In this video dutch slackliner Tijmen van Dieren explains how to do it.
    This combo is the perfect one to get a feeling of what it's like to do trickbouncing on a highline. Later on you can try to get bigger amplitude, for now, you can do it with smaller bounces and make it yourself a bit easier.

  7. Take part in the game and become the Slacktivity Freestyle Champion!

    From April to June we challenge you with 10 different slackline tasks that you have to master. After the task is released, you have 3 weeks to stick the challenge. Every week, a new challenge will be released. Every time you succeed to fulfill the task, you will get to the next round. Every week the tasks will become more challenging.

    Basically the idea is to stick the task on a highline but it is also allowed to fulfill them on a waterline or a longline. However, be aware that some tricks are potentially dangerous on a longline due to possibly uncontrolled ground-falls. A few tasks will also require a leash – those are not allowed on longlines.

You’ll have to upload a video of you doing the requested trick to a video-platform of your choice (Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, others – important to have open privacy settings, so that we will be able to watch the video). Then you send us an e-mail to contest@slacktivity.ch. The following information need to be in the e-mail:

    Header: Make sure to state what round it is already in the header. E.g. “Round 1 – Samuel Volery”

    If you want, then share this video and tag a friend who should also participate, so that you can rig and rage together!

    Disclaimer

    You participate at your own risk. We strongly recommend that you exactly know how to set up a highline and that you make a partner check every time you mount a line! We also strongly recommend to use a dynamic line that allows soft leash falls. Use for example a nylon slackline of about 50m length. Tension it with a 3:1 Hangover-Pulley and 1-2 people pulling – this makes it much easier to get some bounce out of the line.
